Man remains hospitalized after Cheektowaga head-on collision

A Town of Tonawanda man involved in a head-on crash in Cheektowaga remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Town police said Michael N. Block, 56, was heading north on Transit Road late Tuesday afternoon when he apparently suffered from some kind of “medical Issue” and crossed into the southbound lane. Block’s car collided head-on with a pickup truck driven by Alfred C. Dawm, 72, of Orchard Park.

The accident occurred near Strasmer Road.

Both drivers were taken to Erie County Medical Center, where Block was listed in critical condition. Information wasn’t available on Dawm.
